The concept of functioning from the perspective of the spirit of truth for the common good and communicating on the level where one is understood rather than truth as something abstract. One must communicate what the other person can understand rather than to just devulge information. It is the principle that is the focus and not how one feels about something. One must reach a place of objectivity rather than functioning on a very personal and subjective level to be contributing to the good of society and actually to one's own good.
This was not a history or a story narrative but a philsophical explanation of moral law and the matter of the principles of natural law.
Coming to grips with the truth objectively.
This was the most interesting and logical approach to the matter of ethics and morals I have ever heard. I absolutely loved it. It helped me to really uderstand the matter of communicating on the level of what others understand rather than being idealistic. I listened to it several times.
Yes. It is very enlightening on the big questions for the most part, but it does fall short on the question of God and does not address death as a component with that or any other big issue in philosophy. It does not deal wth life after death which seems to reflect on the total failure of dealing with the question of God.
The author is very adept at being objective and speaking from that point of view for the most part. He is also very knowledgeable and lucid giving information and insight that develops the theme along very logical lines.
His presentation carries a perspective that brings an insight into what the narrative delivers. One can discern from his voice and its fluctuations and tone what he means by the words where one might give a heavier interpretation to a different pursuasion if one did not hear him speak them.
Developing an Understanding of the Fundamental Philosophical Questions of Life.
The book was very engaging and easy to follow and it does cover the fundamental questions of life that are not addressed in other forums as they have a philosophical nature. It was very comforting even, to delve into these questions and become informed and enlightened in a way that spawns good logical thinking.
This book correlates with the everyday decisions and perspectives we have to deal with where we need to operate in truth and for the common good. He gives a superior and scholarly understanding of what is significant in our communications and decisions rather than rigidly trying to perform under rules and regulations. We don't live in a perfect world or deal with people who will understand us if we just say what is on our mind, or how we feel so we need discernment. Above all we need to come to a place of discernment that is objective and based on truth, something that is above our natural inclinations.
This is a philosophical dissertation and it is so practical and understandable as well as being something one can put into practice. I love the enlightenment he gave.
Very lucid and teachable approach. He puts the information on the practical level.
Yes! I listened to part 1 and 2 throughout the day and then listened to them again.
I am very adept at Philosophy and Theology and well educated in both though I do not have a doctorate. I found this series very relevant to life rather than just education and theoretical. I appreaciate the matter of morals and laws coming together rather than just law ruling.
